11. september 2014 - kl.10:00 2 timer 100 kr / Gratis (DansiT-medl.) Sted: DansiT Kurs og samtaler

Dana Michel vil ikke si hva denne workshopen inneholder, men vi tror det absolutt er verdt å komme og finne ut!

Under Bastard 2014 viser Dana Michel forestillingen Yellow Towel på Teaterhuset Avant Garden. Vi har vært så heldige at vi har fått mulighet til å arrangere en workshop med det som blir beskrevet som en av de mest fremstående dansekunstnerne i vår tid. Workshopen er åpen for dansere, skuespillere og andre med erfaring fra profesjonelt scenisk arbeid.

Det blir eksorsisme i Technicolor når oppsiktsvekkende, ny kunstner skaper farger av svart-hvitt i en betagende og sterk komposisjon utenom det vanlige. 

Bindende påmelding med navn og bakgrunn sendes til dansekonsulent Eivind Haugland senest onsdag 10. september.

NB! Deltakere bes medbringe: noe å skrive på, noe å skrive med, et idiotisk par sko, en idiotisk hatt, en idiotisk ting til å ha på deg øverst, en idiotisk ting å ha på deg nederst og noe idiotisk å spise.

Om Yellow Towel

English

Dana Michel doesn’t want to say what this workshop is all about, but we think it is worth finding out!

As a part of Bastard 2014, Dana Michel shows us the performance Yellow Towel at Teaterhuset Avant Garden. The performance was singled out as one of the most remarkable productions at the 2014 American Realness Festival by the New York Times, and we are therefore very happy to be able to host this workshop with Dana Michel at DansiT. The workshop is open to dancers, actors and others with professional performing background.

Participants should bring: something to write on, something to write with, a stupid pair of shoes, a stupid hat, a stupid thing to wear on top and a stupid thing to wear on the bottom and something stupid to eat.

Register by sending an e-mail with name and background to Eivind Haugland within wednesday the 10th of September.

About Yellow Towel: Exorcisms in Technicolor

About Dana Michel

Dana Michel is a choreographer and performer based in Montreal, Canada. Her practice is rooted in exploring the disorderly multiplicity of identity using intuitive improvisation and image creation. Before entering the BFA in Contemporary Dance program at Concordia University in her late twenties, she was a marketing executive, competitive runner and football player. In 2011, she received a danceWEB scholarship, allowing her to deepen her research process at ImPulsTanz in Vienna, Austria. She has been making and internationally touring work for the past nine years.

Michel’s newest solo, Yellow Towel, premiered at the 2013 Festival TransAmériques (Montreal) to critical acclaim. The work featured on the “Top Five” and the “Top Ten” 2013 dance moments in the Voir newspaper (Montreal) and Dance Current Magazine (Canada) respectively and was recently singled out as one of the most remarkable productions at the 2014 American Realness Festival (New York City) by the New York Times.
